9789175A-2FDC-4573-AFA6-31BD6BECFB6DMANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Asec Mocha Uson was very gracious in returning the Thomasian Award given to her by the University of Santo Tomas (UST) Alumni Association.

Uson made the move after the USTAAI received intense public criticism for its decision to honor her for government service.

But alas, UST has decided to take back Uson’s diploma after she mistakenly said that Mayon Volcano was in Naga City.

A UST spokesperson said that university standards dictate that graduates should at least know their basic Philippine geography.
